Turkey had their first win on Wednesday in Pool F by defeating Azerbaijan 3-1 in FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship in Osaka, Japan.

"Of course I am happy for the result but I am not happy about the way we are playing. The team is still playing under too big a pressure and we cannot perform as good as we want," Turkish team's coach, Giovanni Guidetti, said after the game.

Turkey -- competing in Pool F against USA, Russia, Thailand, Azerbaijan, Italy, China, and Bulgaria -- was eliminated after a 3-0 defeat by the USA on Monday.

Japan is hosting the world's best 24 teams in six different cities in the tournament between Sept. 29-Oct. 20.

Being ruled out from the third round, Turkey will play their last match against Thailand in Pool F.
